Holidays in Rome

Walk through the eye of the Pantheon at the mercy of the Gods, stand unchallenged in the Colosseum where gladiators once did battle, and chitchat in the Forum Magnum as millions have done before. The influence of the Roman Empire might still be felt right across the Mediterranean, but it’s nothing like being in Rome itself. Feel the resonance of political power in Vatican City and the Pantheon, once the command posts of an empire that last for 1,500 years. Size up the handiwork of mastermind sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini and crane your neck in the Sistine Chapel at the doctrine of the Catholic Church – stroked by the hand of Michelangelo himself. Then, there are those Rome museums that shelter the works of Caravaggio and Raphael. Wash it all down with a glass of smooth Italian wine, as mopeds whizz past cubbyhole churches and the sun sets over the city skyline.

Things to do in Rome

Ancient Sites

City breaks to Rome are spent uncovering time, whether or not you intend to. You can expect to see Romanesque, Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, ornate churches and, of course, the vast Roman Colosseum. Whilst the history of the centre of the Roman Empire is palpable from the streets, the real beauty is on the inside. Visit the Galleria Borghese in Villa Borghese Park, home to Bernini sculptures and paintings by Caravaggio and Raphael. See the marble and bronze collections of the Capitoline Museums, dating as far back as 1471. And be surprised by the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, as it breathes fresh life into Rome’s art scene with its contemporary exhibitions. On top of all this, the Vatican museums need at least a half day to themselves – try not to cram too much in.

 

Food and Drink

City breaks to Rome are all about the cafes, restaurants and gelaterias. The Testaccio neighbourhood, once the gateway for produce arriving to the capital, is famous for its cuisine. Eat and walk with a slice of Romana pizza in hand. Or browse the stalls at Mercato Testaccio for salami, oils, bread and cured meats. Cheap holidays to Rome are easy from a food perspective, thanks to a surge in popularity of street food – you can eat authentically and keep costs down. Wine bars are, like most places in Rome, vestiges of family heritage. The locals tend to drink Frascati, a locally-made white vintage that goes well with traditional food of the central-Italian region. Head to Cul de Sac, just off piazza Navona, where they’ve been pouring wine since 1977 – its narrow interior and patio tables and chairs are much sought after.

  

Hotels in Rome

Rome is a place of architectural splendour – and this is reflected by its hotels. Stay in the Palazzo Naiadi, which is built over a Diocletian thermal bath complex, visible through the lower ground floor. Up on the roof the story of the past keeps on going. Sip Aperol as the sun sets behind the city’s domes and statues, or look down from the Champagnerie terrace onto Rutelli's Fountain of the Naiads. Another hotel in central Rome is the Via Veneto, a ten-minute walk from the Spanish Steps and the Piaza Barberini. Its 116 rooms are decorated in art deco style, all containing bits and bobs that point to Italy’s craftsmanship – here a Florence lamp, there a Murano glass chandelier. Keep your eyes peeled.

  

Best time to visit Rome

The best time to visit Rome is during spring and autumn, to avoid the crowds and high temperatures that come with summer. You’ll also find that Rome flights and hotel prices are lower outside of the summer season. Between June and September, both queues and prices soar. Religious holidays have the same effect, so check the calendar before you book. As for time of the week, consider flying to Rome from Tuesday to Friday – museums are normally closed on Mondays, and weekends are the most popular times for visitors.
